We are pleased to present to our readers the 4th Anniversary issue of Protector. The magazine in the last four years of its launch has continually strived to highlight the various initiatives of the police towards better cop community relationship. Over the years, crime has scaled new heights and has evolved into various forms. Petty crimes are not so much a challenge now, but the white collar crimes aided with the use of technology have been a challenge and have been unleashing terror in recent times. It is not physically possible for police to be available at all places due to so many constraints. Vigilant public in association with police can go a long way in checking the crime, crime detection and solving the cases. But all this is possible only through better cop community relationship.
Police can achieve its policing objectives effectively only if there is a close coordination with the public. And that is possible if there is a comfort in interactionwhich is created based on faith and belief that police is the Protector. Protector as a magazine has played a significant role in bridging the gap and connecting the cops with communities. All the initiatives towards enriching the police public bond have found expression in the magazine.
